Like A Chick Flick For Hombres And Homies
1 August 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Tony is released from jail and due to state laws if he gets as much as a parking ticket he'll be sent back to jail for at least 25 years . Tony hasn't got much on the outside world apart from his daughter who is looked after by his estranged wife and life on the outside leads to all types of temptation

When you've seen one ghetto film you're in danger of seeing all of them . 25 TO LIFE doesn't bring anything new to the table and is a very low budget film released straight to DVD . That said for a film with all those production values of a cheap chick flick / disease of the week TVM I found myself enjoying it far more than I could possibly have expected . Perhaps because there is a lack of budget director Frank Nunez and lead actor Enrique Almeida who both wrote the screenplay concentrate on the very real dilemmas involving Tony and keep everything low key

Some people may very well be disappointed by the lack of scope and action to the story . There's no expected shoot outs with rivals or cops , not a lot in the way of violence but Tony's ambitions of trying to find a job and stay on the straight and narrow did mean I could totally empathise with the guy and Tony is a likable character who isn't over developed . It's certainly not a film that will appeal to action fans and is a little too slow moving to appeal to die hard ghetto movie fans but for a very low budget film released straight to DVD is better written and acted than you'd expect
